Thank you for your interest! We are currently open for art submissions.  We are hoping to reopen for poetry submissions in the beginning of 2020. Please sign up for our newsletter or follow us on social media to get updates.


Bracken is looking for poetry and art  that fit the aesthetic of the magazine. We may solicit fiction and cover art at our discretion.

Before you submit, please familiarize yourself with what we publish by reading our past issues. To find out what our editors want, read interviews with Alina Rios and Jed Myers (part 1 and part 2) . 

Bracken supports diversity and welcomes work by and about individuals of all ages, classes, disabilities, ethnicities, genders, nationalities, races, religions, and sexual orientations. 

Bracken purchases first worldwide English-language serial and electronic rights. Each story or poem we acquire will be published on brackenmagazine.com in an electronic biannual issue. We may also excerpt stories and poems for promotional purposes. The author retains all other rights.

We pay $15 for a poem, and a negotiated rate for solicited fiction and cover art.
